The Summer Concert 2018 at Framfield Grange
Saturday 16 June

We are thrilled to be holding this years concert at Framfield Grange, the home of Jack and Kathy Gore. The sweeping lawns stretch down to the wild flower meadow with the lakes and woodland beyond.

We promise a spectacular performance by the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain. The Uke’s have become a global sensation – nothing short of a national treasure. They have performed for the British Royal Family, the BBC Proms, Sydney Opera House and Carnegie Hall. They provide pure entertainment, dead-pan British humour and irresistible foot-tapping music. They are masters of the unexpected, whether re-imagining folk songs, twisting classical favourites, uncovering quirky versions of rock or playing the performers’ own original compositions. – and find them on YouTube.
We are delighted to host The Uke’s in Framfield and can promise an evening to remember!
